When I was 17, I'd always get upset if people made a big deal about my age. I wanted to be taken seriously. The problem, though, was that I had yet to accomplish anything. Astro, however, has already started making quite a name for himself.
At just 17, he's been a contestant on The X Factor, released some amazing tunes, and now, he has taken Fuse on a guided tour of Brooklyn. Starting out on his old block in East Flatbush, he brings the camera crew through Fort Greene and DUMBO, talking all the while about his influences, inspirations, and dreams.
Fun facts: 1. Astro cites Spike Lee as a major inspiration. 2. Astro really likes Steely Dan and Weather Report. Who knew?
